Patriarchy is pervasive and has invaded all spheres of our lives including our homes, work, and daily politics. It will take decades, if not centuries to undo all the conditioning and deliberate misogyny that greets us at every turn. Working towards an equal society starts with rebutting and calling out people who further misogyny, unknowingly, or knowingly. Cis men live entitled lives in a world that's built to cater to them and reduce sexual and gender minorities to objects, people with limited power, and decision-making capabilities. Not to mention many Cis men holding sway in power corridors work actively to deny others a say in their own lives. There are loads of good people out there who are working towards an equal society and sometimes it starts with shutting up a person trying to pass off a misogynistic remark. Here are some of the wittiest comments that helped shut up jerks and hopefully, serve as inspiration for us to not let them get away with it.
